Mail Online apologises to George
Clooney for publishing false story

Guardian (U.K.), by Roy Greenslade

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 7/9/2014 9:04:35 AM

Mail Online has apologised to George Clooney for publishing an inaccurate story about him, his fiancee and her mother. It has also taken down the article from its website and is planning to give the actor an "opportunity to set the record straight." The story, published originally by Mail Online and then published, in part, by the Daily Mail, stated that the mother of Amal Alamuddin, who is engaged to Clooney, had opposed their forthcoming marriage on religious grounds. Clooney issued a statement accusing the Mail of irresponsibility in publishing what he said was "a completely fabricated story." It stated that Alamuddin´s mother, Baria,

Clooney needs to realize that what the media makes popular, they can also destroy. Clooney is a media tool, and a vulnerable target.

Rush Limbaugh has lived by that piece of sound advice since he started in radio over 2 decades ago.

The media did not make him, and therefore cannot destroy him like they have so many others.

Britain will not be involved in another war in Iraq, David Cameron has vowed. The Prime Minister said the British government would not put be "putting boots on the ground" or "sending in the army" in its fight against the "murderous" Islamic State, formerly ISIS. However, he warned that terrorists trained by IS will cause “mayhem on our own streets” if the “political and extremism” crisis in Iraq is not dealt with. Michael Fallon warned that Britain´s mission in Iraq will last for months as RAF Tornados and surveillance aircraft are deployed to help "stop the advance" of Islamic State extremists.

The violent advances of Islamic militants in Iraq is not an isolated problem but rather a “growing global challenge” that needs to be dealt with, the top American general in Iraq told Army Times. “We must neutralize this enemy,” said Army Lt. Gen. Mick Bednarek, chief of the Office of Security Cooperation-Iraq in a Wednesday phone interview. “This is not just an Iraqi issue. This is not just a regional issue. This is a common enemy issue that we’ve got to address.” Islamic State fighters have advanced across the northern and western parts of Iraq, seizing control of cities such as Mosul

This morning on New Day, Newt Gingrich came on to discuss Barack Obama‘s proposal to combat ISIS in Iraq — and, judging by his response, thinks that Obama isn’t recognizing that this is a problem of “radical Islam.” “Nobody wants to tell the truth,” he complained. “The truth is this is a radical Islamist group. They say openly if you don’t convert, we’ll kill you. It turns out they actually mean it. There’s no complexity…The president couldn’t even honestly describe ISIS last night because it goes against his ideology.” And, just to be clear, that ideology is that ISIS “has a very

On the day that sired the flames that came to consume his presidency, Richard Nixon stirred slowly and didn’t sit for breakfast until after 8 a.m. The White House was filled with relatives and friends that Sunday morning. They had gathered for his daughter Tricia’s wedding, which had taken place the previous evening among the blossoms in the misty Rose Garden (and amid anxious consultations with Air Force meteorologists). The affair was “a fairyland” to rival Christmas, an enchanted Rose Mary Woods, Nixon’s longtime secretary, told him. Nixon and his family rifled through the newspaper coverage of the ceremony.

About a month after asking states for help finding temporary shelter for undocumented child migrants—sparking much handwringing over the issue—the federal government now says it no longer needs the help. In a Tuesday afternoon letter, a federal Health and Human Services official thanked Massachusetts for its offer of assistance, writing that “HHS is no longer seeking facilities for temporary shelters for unaccompanied children at this time,” due to a decline in the number of unaccompanied children apprehended by and in the custody of Customs and Border Protection. “Thank you for your offer of two Massachusetts facilities to assist with the humanitarian response

A second American infected with the potentially deadly Ebola virus arrived at Emory University Hospital on Tuesday from Africa, following the first patient last weekend. Both were greeted by a team of highly trained physicians and nurses, a specialized isolation unit, extensive media coverage, and a storm of public reaction. People responded viscerally on social media, fearing that we risked spreading Ebola to the United States. Those fears are unfounded and reflect a lack of knowledge about Ebola and our ability to safely manage and contain it. Emory University Hospital has a unit created specifically for these types of highly

Why Ebola’s nothing to worry about

We’re now witnessing the worst Ebola epidemic ever — and on your list of worries it belongs .?.?. nowhere. Here’s a rule of thumb about diseases: The rarer and less likely they are to kill you, the more hype they get. The New York Times ran more than 2,000 articles on SARS, which ultimately killed zero Americans. This is only the deadliest outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease because past ones were so tiny. At this writing, there have been 1,603 reported cases in Africa and 887 deaths. That’s too many. But every day about 600 sub-Saharan Africans die of tuberculosis, and contagious diarrhea

New York -- For more than 200 years, it lay hidden beneath the ground upon which New York City´s World Trade Center once stood. Now, four years after its discovery, scientists say they´ve solved the mystery of the ship hull found in the wreckage of the former World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan. The hull, originally found by archeologists monitoring the site´s excavation, has been traced back to colonial-era Philadelphia, according to researchers at the Tree Ring Research Laboratory at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University.

At 4:07 p.m. Tuesday, the chief executive of Time Warner Inc., Jeffrey L. Bewkes, received an unexpected email. “On behalf of our board and senior management team, I am writing to inform you that we are withdrawing our offer to acquire Time Warner, effective immediately. Sincerely, Rupert Murdoch.” A hand-delivered letter bearing the same message arrived soon after. Thus ended — for the time being, anyway — what was shaping up as the biggest media merger in a decade, a $150 billion union of two giant conglomerates. Together, Mr. Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox and Time Warner would have created a

Seth Jackson walked into his Wichita, Kan., home with pizza in hand and his 5-year-old foster child in tow around 4 in the afternoon on July 24, according to police. He and his husband sat down with the pizza, smoked marijuana and watched a few episodes of the HBO series “Game of Thrones” when a crying baby on the screen jolted Jackson back to reality. Their 10-month-old foster daughter was still in the Dodge Charger parked outside of the home. Wichita police have charged Jackson, 29, with first-degree murder in the baby girl’s death.

U.S. policymakers gird for rash

Washington policymakers are bracing for a wave of corporations to renounce their U.S. citizenship over the next few months, depriving the federal government of billions of dollars in tax revenue and stoking public outrage ahead of the Nov. 4 congressional elections. So far this year, about a dozen U.S. companies — including such well-known brands as Medtronic medical devices and Chiquita bananas — have merged with foreign firms and shifted their headquarters offshore to avoid U.S. taxes, analysts say. Dozens of additional deals are in the works, according to administration and congressional officials, and other companies are quietly contemplating the move. Last

The latest round in Israel’s ongoing military battle is seemingly over. Now the diplomatic war begins. And this is a war that will be grueling, extend for a longer period than just four weeks, and be fought on various fronts. Israel has, historically, done far better on the battlefield than in the diplomatic arena that follows its wars. This was true in 1949, when Israel won the War of Independence but could not convert that into any form of acceptance in the region. It was true in 1967,

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease.

FERGUSON, Missouri — It was a little after 9 p.m., and I was in the McDonald’s parking lot, standing by my car. A police helicopter circled overhead, its spotlight sweeping back and forth.Then I heard the sound of shattering glass: A rubber bullet had been fired through a window of McDonald’s, which until then, had been one of the few sanctuaries on West Florissant Avenue. Now I didn’t feel safe anywhere. State troopers in riot gear and armored trucks moved south on West Florissant, firing flash grenades and tear gas canisters at a crowd of protesters who only minutes before had been

Since the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, the nation and the world have witnessed the unrest that has gripped Ferguson, Mo. At the core of these demonstrations is a demand for answers about the circumstances of this young man’s death and a broader concern about the state of our criminal justice system. At a time when so much may seem uncertain, the people of Ferguson can have confidence that the Justice Department intends to learn — in a fair and thorough manner — exactly what happened.

Jeffords had announced in 2005 that he would not seek a fourth term, citing his and his wife´s health problems.

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air. Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.
